    Though the reports are protected the reports can be obtained and many times when reading the reports you can determine who the caller might have been. Sometimes the reports will have statements like "reporter (which is redacted) believes grandchild is in danger". Easy to see from the statement that it is a grandparent. I would suggest you contact an attorney to see about obtaining the information behind all of the investigations.

    So long as the court order requires the visiting parent to do so via a visitation center or a supervisor and that parent refuses to comply then it is not likely that the sole managibg conservator parent will be held in contempt. If the Parent in possession of the child has questions regarding the Court Order then they should seek advise of an attorney.

    You may not have the financial resources but I would suggest you get an attorney immediately. These kind of cases with the facts you stated above can have devastating results if not properly represented. The attorney above mentioned legal aid or the Tarrant County Bar Association which are both amazing resources but may not take your case since it is a modification. If family violence is the allegation for the modification then primary conservatorship could be changed to the other party at the...

    If this is a true and accurate fear that your ex husband is using drugs illegally then I would suggest you contact an attorney in your area immediately to seek a modification of your prior order and possibly a temporary restraining order to stop his visitation until a hearing can be held and drug testing completed. Many times I have the opposing party drug tested at the hearing so they can not avoid the test if they show up to the hearing. You have a duty to protect your children from a...

    I would advise you to seek counsel and make sure that any paperwork that has been signed by the Judge be taken with you to that consultation. They are to many factors in this kind of case to determine by the limited information that you provided such as age if the child, number of years in this country, whether it not the child has dual citizenship, what country you are from, whether or not your husband has connections to that country and which county you currently reside in. As you can see,...

    There may be a need to transfer the Georgia case to Texas or to do the Termination in Georgia. If both parents are willing and you have has possession of the child for time required by adoption law than I would think it would be pretty standard to terminate the parental rights and then adopt the child. I would suggest you find an adoption attorney in your county.

    If you already have a mediated stllement agreement you may have bigger issues than you think. I would suggest you seek counsel immediately and take any documents, from the case and especially the mediation, with you.

    If the mother is on drugs then you do not need to wait to file suit. You could qualify based on emergency. If CPS has filed a suit and they terminate mom's parental rights then you could adopt the children and receive benefits. Based on the information provided I can not determine your current legal position. I would suggest you seek advise of an attorney immediately.

    There is not enough information in your question for me to answer but I would suggest you look at Texas Family Code Section 71 especially 71.0004 which defines family violence.

    The question does not make sense to me but anytime they CPS is involved I would suggest that you hire a competent local attorney to help you with the process. CPS has very serious power in cases involving child that include being able to terminate a parents rights. Representation by an attorney is always advised.
